Update on Ganzorig

Ganzorig, 39 years old, lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in a Mongolian traditional ger (portable felt dwelling) on a plot of land. He has been running a transportation business using his own truck for twenty-one years. His two children both go to high school. Even though he owns a house on his plot of land, his family doesn’t live there because the house’s low pressure heating system is broken and over the years the house has been deteriorating and thus needs some serious repair. Therefore he is requesting a loan of 6,700,000 MNT to purchase necessary construction and insulation materials. The main repair work includes but is not limited to the installment of a heating system, interior decoration, roof insulation and the installment of vacuum windows. As a result the family will be able to live in a comfortable and warm place. Most importantly, the renovated house won’t lose its heat, which will reduce the consumption of coal, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution.

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
